    Our History

    SCORE VALVES was founded by three partners in Stettler Canada in 1988, supplying manufactured products and services including: triple offset butterfly valves, dual plate & wafer-style check valves, ball valves, and refractory lined valves in addition to oilfield services. SCORE VALVES partnered with C&S Valve, and later Atwood and Morrill Company, on the TRICENTRIC® butterfly valve for design, manufacture and distribution. SCORE VALVES continued to grow, building on the substantial installed base of the TRICENTRIC® from the early 1970’s- as the first triple offset valve designed in North America. Company growth led to relocation in 1990 into a larger facility in Edmonton Canada where the company continues to provide customer focused North American design, manufacture & distribution – whatever the technical complexity—as a leading engineered valve solutions provider.

Focused on Customers since 1988

“In those early days, our people worked very hard to solidify the viability of the company. We established a work ethic and a reputation that continues to benefit us today.”

—Al Webster
